Lenovo K8 Plus sports vertical dual-rear camera with 13MP

After a brief hiatus in the first half of 2017, Chinese smartphone maker Lenovo announced three devices in quick succession — K8 Note, K8 Plus and K8 (the K8 would be introduced around Diwali) — in India .
K8 Plus looks like a smaller sibling of K8 Note that was launched in August, with a toned down specification-sheet.
This is the second smartphone from the handset maker to sport dual primary cameras.
Major highlights of K8 Plus are stock Android operating system (OS) and dual camera set-up at the rear.
The smartphone sports a vertical dual-rear camera set-up with 13MP “Purecel Plus” sensor + 5MP depth sensor and f/2.0 Largan Precision 5-element lens.
At Rs 10,999, let’s see how this device does in the fiercely-competitive Indian smartphone market.
Stock Android, which was once shunned by handset makers for its lacklustre features, has become the most talked-about feature in a smartphone now.
K8 Plus offers smooth performance, thanks to the stock 7.1 Android OS.
The 5.2-inch full HD display (1440 X 1080 pixels) produces vivid colours with decent sunlight legibility.
The “oleophobic” coating on the screen prevents fingerprint smudges. This is a good value addition in a smartphone that would be used in a humid and hot country like India. In terms of design language, Lenovo has made the smartphone ergonomic enough for single-handed use. It also feels sturdy at the same time.
The rear side of K8 Plus has a smooth metal finish and the venom black coloured unit we received for review looked great.
The 13MP + 5MP dual camera at the rear is able to capture decent images with details in daylight.
